Response to Intervention (RTI)

Response to Intervention (RTI)

Response to Intervention (RTI) is a campus based, multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs. The RTI process begins with high-quality instruction and universal screening of all children in the general education classroom. Students who may struggling with certain academic or behavioral skills are provided with interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate their rate of learning. These services may be provided by a variety of personnel, including general education teachers, special program educators, and specialists. Progress is closely monitored to assess both the learning rate and level of performance of individual students. Educational decisions about the intensity and duration of interventions are based on individual student response to instruction.

The goal of the RTI program is to identify a student’s needs early, be able to provide a system of support and intervention, and guide them toward academic or behavioral success.
